Solved Mid-Range Laptop for a designer Tags: Laptops Product Last response: October 12, 2010 4:14 PM in Laptops & Notebooks Share alphasol October 11, 2010 7:39:06 AM Hi, I need help picking out a laptop to run PS,AI,ID smoothly and 3DSM. I've been trolling around looking for options so I've narrowed it down to: ASUS G Series G60VX-RBBX05 NoteBook Intel Core 2 Duo P7450(2.13GHz) 16" 4GB Memory DDR2 800 320GB HDD 7200rpm DVD Super Multi NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260M http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... MSI FX600-003US NoteBook Intel Core i3 350M(2.26GHz) 15.6" 4GB Memory 500GB HDD BD Combo NVIDIA GeForce GT 325M http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I know I should really be buying a macbook pro but from the looks of it. Its not worth the expense =/ I game from time to time and definitely looking for something that'll play d3 & sc2 I could use some more purchase options if these two aren't up to par Thanks in advance!
